Gangnam Style one billion views

21 Dec, 2012

Gangnam Style becomes the first video on YouTube to hit one billion views. YouTube celebrates by putting a small dancing cartoon of Psy next to the view count. Psy says:

In 2012, I experienced so many things; it’s been a tremendous year, but to accomplish this, it’s really something that stands out. Because it all began with YouTube, and to have [the video] reach 1 billion views … I don’t think even I can break that record!
